You may have thought Hugh Jackman's Wolverine days were over, but it turns out they're just future past.
OK, we don't know what that means either. The point is, you can't kill Wolverine.

Though this time it isn't regeneration we have to thank but rather a little Best Picture Oscar winner called Birdman!
In a new interview with Cigar Aficionado magazine (Wolverine's favorite!), Hugh described how watching Michael Keaton's former superhero gave him new inspiration:
"I said to my wife, 'The moral is that I should never stop playing Wolverine. I've got to find a way to keep playing him until I die.'"
Yesss! Considering the amazing shape Hugh is in, that really could be forever!
In fact, Hugh keeps getting in better shape BECAUSE OF Wolverine. He explained:
"I always want to be in better shape than I was for the last one. I don't believe in stagnation.
People say they try to maintain the status quo. But I believe the natural cycle means you're either advancing and getting closer to something or you're receding … Every time I play Wolverine, I want to go further, physically and emotionally."
Though Hugh does admit that when his time as the mutant hero will be over, he will be happy to pass the torch:
"I know that someday they'll recast the role with another actor. I'd be happy if the role was eventually recast. It would mean that it had become iconic."
Thanks to Hugh and his incredible butt, it already is.
